Lebanon - Holidays, Flights and Hotels
Lebanon travel offers from cheap and secure online tour operators.
The Republic of Lebanon, is a small, largely mountainous country in the Middle East, located at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south, with a narrow coastline along its western edge. The flag of Lebanon features the Lebanon Cedar in green against a white backdrop, with two quarter-height horizontal red stripes on the top and bottom.
The name Lebanon (also "Loubnan" or "Lebnan") is derived from the Aramaic word laban, meaning "white", a reference to snow-capped Mount Lebanon.
A Middle Eastern country, Lebanon is demarcated to the west by the Mediterranean (Coast: 225 km; 140 mi) and to the east by the Syro-African Depression. Lebanon borders Syria for 375 kilometres (233 mi) to the north and to the east and Israel for 79 kilometres (49 mi) to the south. The border with Israel has been approved by the United Nations (see Blue Line (Lebanon)), although a small piece of land called "Shebaa Farms" located in the Golan Heights is claimed by Lebanon but occupied by Israel, who claim that it is actually Syrian land. The UN has officially declared this region not to be Lebanese territory, but Hizbulla occasionally launches attacks against Israeli positions within it.

The political situation in Lebanon remains unstable after the "Cedar Revolution" (Syrian withdrawal) of 2005 and the Israeli invasion of 2006. Innocent bystanders have been killed by bombings and assassination attempts directed at politicians, and in Israeli bombing attacks on so called "Hezbullah strongholds". Rallies and demonstrations are common and occasionally turn violent. Land mines and UXO, a legacy of the lengthy civil war, can still be found in some areas. It is recommended you enquire about the political situation in the country before visiting.
Lebanon has six ski resorts with groomed slopes, catering to skiers and snowboarders of all levels. Beyond the ski-able domains await you kilometers of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails waiting to be explored; Lebanon has something for everyone. Each of the ski resorts has a different flavor; however, it is Faraya Mzaar (Kfardebian) that offers world-class infrastructure and facilities for the tourists, at less then 40 minutes drive from Beirut. Expect a bit of pretentiousness on the part of the Lebanese; many would rather show off their 'chic' ski gear than hit the slopes. Any bit of cloudy overcast will send them off the slopes.
